BACKGROUND The purpose of this research is to study the relationship between superoxide dismutase (SOD) and lung redox state in an animal model of sepsis. METHODS Sepsis was induced in rats by the cecal ligation and perforation model (CLP). After 3, 6, and 12 h, CLP protein content and expression of SOD1, SOD2, and SOD3 were evaluated, and SOD activity(More)
